16 RCDS Students Recognized at 2019 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards

Sixteen RCDS students have been recognized by the 2019 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. A jury of leaders in the visual and literary arts blindly judge student submissions on the basis of the Awards' core values: originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal voice or vision. Student talent and skill are acknowledged by a Gold Key Award (top honor), Silver Key Award, or Honorable Mention. All works receiving Gold Keys will move on to national judging in New York City, and will be considered for national honors.

Congratulations to all honorees!
